Nokia Navigation :: Maps, Lack Of Color / Contrast In Drive Mode?
Nov 13, 2011
I have updated by n8 with Anna and Maps 3.08, 11wk41 b02, map version 0.2.43.117. It works fine except when driving to a destination on a freeway / motorway. The roadway is a gray color that blends into the background and even though it zooms in at interchanges it is small. Thus, at 70 MPH you cannot clearly see where to turn without staring at the scene, very dangerous. This makes it unusable and unsafe for freeway driving and it must be changed. Can I go back to the old version, or do I just start using my Tom Tom GPS and dump the phone.
Is it possible to raise the house outlines on the map to a third dimension where possible? At the moment only 3D objects, specially made, are seen in the phone, but it would be nice to see also other regular buildings on a constant 3D level.
I just received a Lumia 900 and updated to the latest firmware and am having troubles downloading maps on nokia drive, both on the 2.0 and now 3.0. It says I need to be on wifi to download, however I am on wifi and I can access the web, email and every other function on my phone, except download maps on Nokia Drive as it doesn't recognize I am online on wifi however drive does work only it updates the map in realtime so I can't use the maps offline as it does not allow me to download offline maps. When I uninstall drive and then reinstall the app I can download from the maps for countries that do not have regions such as hong kong, however if I select US or China, a large country where you have to select the region the region/state page is blank. I have already tried soft and hard resetting to no avail and also tried different wifi networks with the results.
I've a L920 runing Maps (v220.127.116.11) and Drive+ Beta (v18.104.22.1681).I've imported my landmarks into Maps, but it is not shared with Drive+, so I have to first go into Maps and then choose the landmark I want to navigate to. The route is then displayed.How do I get Drive+ to open so I can get voice guidance?
Just bought Nokia Lumia 810 (T-Mobile) and downloaded the maps - the internal memory is ony 8gb. With OS and the Maps it takes up considerable space. Is it possible to move the map to the SD card? If yes any link or steps to do the same?
For using Nokia Drive - is it mandatory to download the maps? Just wondering how Google Navigation / Maps work for Android as I don't recall d/l any maps on Android!
I test drove the Nokia drive on couple of known locations and both times the paths chosen were uncommon - when comparing to the inbuilt GPS in the car as well as with Google Navigation! This was US maps. I hope Nokia Maps / Drive gets better.
I downloaded and installed maps of Australia and the surfer dude voice using map loader. However my maps application did not detect any drive navigation voice. When I browsed the voices folder however it was there.i had to download another voice thru the maps application (sadly no surfer dud) in order to get voice navigation. Is there any reason for this? I am using a 5800 with v31 and im using maps v3.04. Although with both v3.03 and 3.04 the same problem was there.
I just buy a brand new n8 today. I notice the difference in screen color tone. My nokia n8 screen color just show reddest color. And also it looks like it working in 16 bit color. It mostly noticeable when playing tron trailer. The black and grey color just look reddest. And the contrast seems set to very low. My old one, did not get this error.the color was so vivid.and the contrast was very good. The screen was so amazing, compare to mine.
Ovi maps app. is not connecting with net. Unable to download voice guidance language,my city map is not loading,not being able to search the destination. Whenever i start the maps app. it shows unable to connect with internet. Whenever i search a destination it shows "searching offline". Am using Nokia c5-03 and It shows as the latest update.
I replaced my Torch 9800 LCD a couple days ago. The battery was dead, so when I connected it so it could charge, I saw that the charging screen was odd. It is supposed to be black and the gray battery with the yellow thingy, and it was a white background and instead of a yellow thingy, it was blue. Now all of my OS is inverted, I changed the option in the settings but nothing helped. In fact, when it is set to normal, it is inverted, and when is inverted, it is normal, I don't know what to do, this option does not affect the camera. When I use the camera it looks like negative or like an x ray.
The photographs I take with my Z3 main camera are blurred, hazy and lack color saturation & focus. I have read elsewhere that this might result from a defective lens cover with scratched anti-glare coating. Is there an easy way to fix this?
How to edit favourites, i.e. How to delete or change name. As an example, when saving your position it seems that the name used on the favourite is taken from the map and if the map is not updated with the correct adress I need to change this (this is a fact with my home adress). Further more I cannot find avway to delete a saved favourie.
I've tried many navigation applications and Nokia Drive holds up rather well. But one area I noticed it seems off compared to many others is it seems to favor or use unknown names compared to other apps. It often calls out street names that are not marked as such.
For instance in Florida it seems to be calling I-95 SR 9. After a little research I found the SR 9 is a hidden designation that isn't marked by any road signs.
So I finally tried to use Nokia Drive on a real trip (in New Jersey, USA) and I've noticed that the software often seems stuck on returning you to the originally plotted route when you deviate from it, instead of finding the best remaining route based on the new location. I'll give details for my particular trip in case this is a local issue.
We decided to take the NJ Turnpike to route 18 to River Road to Interstate 287 instead of 295 to 206 to 287 as Nokia Drive recommended (the routes are roughly equivalent in travel time, so I don't fault this initial route selection). When we entered the Turnpike, the new route kept trying to get us to 295 until we passed Exit 7 (In reality, past Exit 5 there isa considerable penalty to getting off the turnpike and onto I 295).
Finally, after Exit 7 it decided we should stay on the turnpike and get to 287 directly using Exit 10 (This too is roughly equivalent in travel time, so it was a reasonable suggestion). Once we took Exit 9 to route 18 instead it picked a different route than the one we are familiar with and this is where the biggest problem occurred. The route it suggested would enter 287 North at Exit 7, while the route we took entered 287 at Exit 9. It kept insisting we get back on its rout and get on at exit 7 to the point that when we were about to enter 287 at exit 9, it told us to get onto 287 *south* and take it to exit 7 where we would exit the highway and immediately re-enter it northbound. This is rediculous and should never have been suggested.
Am I right in my assessment that the software tries to stick to the original route instead of calculating a new one on the spot? What possible advantage can there be in doing it this way?
I've got a new 710. i tried updating drive to 3.0 but after downloading 50 % it says attention required. press here.So i uninstalled. whenever i tried reinstalling it, the same happens after downloading 50 % it says attention required. press here.So now i have no nokia drive on the phone. I even hard reset the phone.
I have a N85 Navi which I bought less than a year ago. I updated this week the maps and the application (latest version)and added one voice for the navigation. After this update when I open the Maps and select Settings and Navigation (to change i.e. voice), Maps closes automatically without any error messages. I can open all the other settings sub-menus. Any ideas why this is happening? Do I have the to re-install the application, maps and voices?
having upgraded from my much loved nokia n97 mini, to the new lumia 800 (very impressed aswell).
But.. No speed camera alerts (this was a much loved feature for me in ovi maps) No Favourite route option (again, this was a much used feature for me in ovi maps), found it brilliant if i stumbled upon a place whilst driving, and thought i want to check this place out. used to pull over where safe, and pin the point, and go back when i had time.
On the plus side, bigger mapping, 3d symbols, and a much clearer and louder voice tellig you where to go.
i have maps 3.04v? i used Nokia Suite to transfer maps of Bosnia and Hercegovina, Croatia and Serbia. Nokia Suite also transferred Europe base map. But i think i can only view base map of Europe. I cant view detiled maps of cityies.
I my dad recently bought the Nokia N8 after playing about with mine, I recieved the phone unlocked and set about setting it up for him, though i'm having foul problems with the maps! i've installed them, re-installed them, uninstalled and then reinstalled again and no luck, there wasn't even a Maps icon any time it was installed, but on my Nokia N8 when it was installed if went straight onto my home screen? how can I finally download these maps to this phone for my dad? he's starting to become really impatient because he needs to use the maps for his job
I installed Nokia Navigation 2.0 with some maps on my Lumia phone. But how can I find out the version of the installed maps? And how can I check the actual existing version of the maps on the Nokia server?
Nokia maps erases the maps on every second startup.The situation is the following:I run Nokia maps, it erases the mapsI connect the phone to the pc; nokia suite says he has to update the maps on my phone, I say okafter the update, there are no maps on the phone, so I chose one or two and install itdisconnect from the pc, run Nokia Maps, there are the mapsI quit from Maps and start it again, it wants to erase my maps againand there is no choice for either I let it to erase it, or it quitsAnyone?
When I bought nokia e72, I have reveived lot's of maps (almost 4GB). I want to free-up my memory card by removing some of maps. I try to do it in ovi application, but there is not possibility to do that. I can see all maps that are in my phone, but how to remove some of them?
I recently bought a nokia E7 (Blue) US Version but I am using it in Canada. I updated it to Symbian Anna and so on. Everytime I try to add new maps from the cell phone itself it says (downloading list, please wait) this takes FOREVER, then i try to do it by nokia ovi suite, well that is even worse, sometimes it says THERE SEEMS TO BE A PROBLEM WITH CONNECTING THE ONLINE MAPS, sometimes it says some crazy errors (COULDNT CONNECT TO THE SERVICE, ETCC). I deleted the E:/cities folder + QF file, I opened the Ovi map apps and they got restored and so on but still nothing happens. Is there any other way to add some map I mean MANUALLY? I need the USA and Canada map, (voice guidande male us), I read some discussion from Ovikudy on how to do it manually but i need theses files.
BTW, I regret buying this Nokia E7 big time I should have listened to my friends and go to ANDROID. I know nokia is killing symbian but please fix those MAP serverS.
Anyone know how to drive to an contact's address in the address book, without having to: 1. Find contact 2. Select 3. Write down address on a paper(!) 4. Open Ovi Maps 5. Choose "find places" 6. Enter the address written down on the paper. There has to be an easier way! I've tried to copy the address, but I cannot paste it into Ovi Maps.
